Rare Relic

A rare relic - photo by Russell Read, project volunteer

Large elm trees are now a rare sight in the Chilterns after a virulent strain of Dutch Elm disease swept the country in 1967. This highly contagious disease killed more than 25 million trees in the UK alone.

Surviving elms of any size tend to be isolated individuals, as is the case with this special tree which has a girth of more than 2 metres. It is found in a small private garden but is belived to have originally stood in the grounds of Berkhamsted Hall, a manor house which no longer exists.

Disabled Access

To visit this special tree please call 01844 355 525 quoting ST026.
